She-Hulk Vs. Superman's Villains



I am still amazed that we have not seen a live action She-Hulk yet.  I've said it before - A lawyer that deals in meta-human cases who is also a superhero herself would make for a great  Movie or TV series filled with action, humor, and courtroom drama. Plus, Jennifer Walters has such a great personality, I would think it would be a fun role to play for an actress.

Mr Mxyptlk bothering about a court case, instead of just disappearing? Curious...


I'm slightly surprised that She-Hulk apparently hasn't met Kate 'Manhunter' Spencer here yet

Who is the character to the right under The Parasite?

Bob Greenwade said...

Personally I'm just a little disappointed that Daredevil never had at least a cameo or passing mention of a pre-Shulkie Jen Waters. It would have been a very nice Easter egg for Marvel fans.

Matt Murdock also seems like a good possible courtroom opponent for Simreeve's Kate Spencer suggestion.

I recall a few stories where Mxyzptlk had to go on a trial in his home dimension. One such story was adapted for the Superman animated series. Maybe the court case these villains face is of alien or extra dimensional origin.

Why would NYC lawyer Matt Murdock know a California based lawyer Jennifer Walters or have reason to bring her up?

I admit I haven't kept up with all the re-designs of Superman's bad guys. Who are the two on either side of the Kryptonite Man (red head and guy talking) ?

"I admit I haven't kept up with all the re-designs of Superman's bad guys."

That looks like a pre-Crisis line-up to me.

Sgt Snorkle, Jay Johnson; I think those guys are the Toyman (Jack B. Nimble/ COTSF) who adopted the identity, till the original murdered him & the red is Metallo. I think the original cover was from an issues where Superman found the villains assembled in Clark Kent's apartment.

Jay Johnson said...

Well, duh, most of the guys are Silver Age, of course. Just don't remember Metallo being a ginger and I thought that was Punch at first, although Toyman (even a substitute one) makes more sense.

Although looking at this line-up, besides Maxima, did Supes have any female adversaries? (The Lois / Lana / Lori soap-operas don't count!)

Bob Buethe said...

Clockwise from the top: the Parasite, Amalak, Kryptonite Man, Toyman (2), Terra-Man, Brainiac, the Prankster, Luthor, and Mr. Mxyzptlk.

Scott Nesmith said...

The red-haired character is Amalak, a space pirate.

Thanks, Scott and Bob. I must confess I never heard of Amalak. I initially thought I was looking at an alternate 20th century Dev-Em all grown-up!

Scott Cummins said...

I don't know if the pictures are online or not but I remember The Comics Buyers Guide and Comics Scene Magazine running pictures of a proposed She-Hulk movie back in the 90s. It was to star Brigitte Nielsen. The costume at the time was comic accurate and yes she was green. There was also talk she would show up in one of the Hulk movies at the time but she didn't. Instead Thor and Daredevil did. I forgot why the movie was never made.

Jay, there were a few recurring female characters, but I can't think of many. Faora, Syrene (the former Mrs. Lord Satanis), later the Silver Banshee. At one stage the Ultra-Humanite was in the body of Dolores Winters, but I don't know if that counts. Then there are those from Apocalips like Granny Goodness and Amazing Grace who are general bad guys rather than Superman-specific enemies.

So did I.

plus Lady Blaize (sister to Lord Satanis), Livewire (not the LSH one), and Ursa (Phantom Zone villain, introduced via the films and used in the comics later on in place of Faora)...

Jay Johnson said...

I'd count Ultra-Humanite as Winters and Faora/Ursa. Don't know much about Livewire and what I do know is confused by the cartoon and CW versions. Didn't Silver Banshee start out as a Wonder Woman adversary? And I made a point to stay far away from anything to do with Lord Satanis.

Kid Charlemagne said...

I think JJ is thinking of Silver Swan as a foe of WW, rather than Silver Banshee.

Jay Johnson said...

Correctomundo. My bad.

She actually started in the cartoons and, like Harley Quinn, made the jump from there into the comics.

@Mr. Bubble: maybe they went to the same law school together. For instance; not everybody who graduated from the Harvard School of Law came from Massachusetts!
